Stratco is a company that primarily manufactures a wide range of metal based products including most standard roofing & rainwater products plus the famous Outback® Verandahs, Patios and Carports, Good Neighbour® Fencing, Homesheds, and Garden Sheds.
Rainwater is a valuable natural resource that can be collected as an environmentally responsible way to provide real cost savings to any home or business. Homeowners and urban planning authorities are recognising the benefits of rainwater collection with new legislation being introduced in many areas.
A rainwater tank can save up to 100,000 litres of water a year in an average home. Collected rainwater can be used to water the garden, wash the car, or as drinking water. With additional plumbing and a pump, a tank can be used to flush the toilet, fill a washing machine, fill a water heater or be used through a cold water tap.
Pumps and Accessories
Get the full potential out of your rainwater tank with a complete range of pumps and accessories from Stratco. A wide range of pumps are available. The pump you choose will depend on the tank size, the requirements of the service that will feed from the tank, and the diameter of the plumbing pipes and the pressure required.
If you choose to run your services solely from tank water, you may need a top-up facility to fill part of the tank with mains water when the rainwater gets low. When connecting to mains water, a backflow prevention device is needed to prevent the reverse flow of tank water into mains water. Some pumps have backflow and top-up devices built into their design. Stratco can supply separate top-up devices, backflow prevention devices and any pipes and fittings needed to complete the system.
